Forum: Around The Majors

Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.

  1. Would a Runner Get Credit For Advancing in This Scenario?

    Let's say there are runners on first and third with one out. The batter flies out. The runner on third tries to score, gets in a rundown, and gets tagged out for the last out. Before the tag out, the runner from first got to second. Just like how a run counts if it was scored before the third out if it wasn't a forceout, shouldn't the trail runner get credit in the play-by-play for advancing? In my scenario, second base was unoccupied, so the trail runner could have advanced without the...

  2. Baseball Lingo

    This is an edited list I'd compiled earlier, which includes a list from Dickson's Baseball Dictionary: Numbers "1-2-3 inning": Top or bottom half of an inning in which the first three (3) batters are retired in successive order, with no one getting on base. "12 to 6": A curveball which drops from very high to very low (from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock position). Same as the "bottom fell out".

  3. Rule Changes 2019-2020

    This just out - here are the highlights from Matt Collins' perspective. Thoughts? https://www.overthemonster.com/2019/3/14/18265213/mlb-rule-changes-home-run-derby-roster-size-september-trade-deadline Starting this year, the All-Star game voting will be changed to an Election Day style format. We discussed this not too long ago when it was first rumored, and I still pretty much have the same thoughts. Basically, itís fine I guess. Their hope is that it will put their stars on a bigger...

  4. The New CBA in 2022

    So the market is at a standstill. Free agency is broken. Arbitration eligibility needs to be reformed. Here's some thoughts: Create a deadline for signing free agents, maybe Christmas each year. Maximum contract terms become five years. This should incent both the clubs and the players to really negotiate faster and cut out all the low-balling, poker-playing and false news. Players should no longer be expecting the security they've become accustomed to - the clubs don't want long term...

  7. A Lot of Teams not Competing

    Let's see: In the AL it's Seattle, Texas, Anaheim, Detroit, Minnesota & KC. 40% of the league. In the NL there's Arizona, San Francisco, Pittsburgh & Miami, with several other teams not looking very likely to compete for postseason play. This is not good for the game, IMO - and I think it draws attention to not having a minimum payroll for each team, in order to create more competition in general. How in the world can a team be competitive with a $100M payroll?? Aren't these owners...

  9. Roy Halladay and the Hall of Fame

    I was just looking at Roy Halladay's career numbers earlier today, and I can't imagine him having the credentials to make the HOF unless he can keep this up for 4-6 more years. He is perceived to be one of the best pitchers in the game, which I completely agree with. His numbers are falling a little short for the HOF voters though. He is entering his age 32 season and he only has 131 wins with a career 3.52 ERA and 1287 K's in roughly 1800 innings. He has 1 Cy Young award and has finished...

  10. MLB Offense Performance Thread

    Hope it's OK if I start a thread to discuss overall offense in MLB. I read this interesting article and was curious to see what everyone thinks -- hopefully it will spark some interesting discussion. https://slate.com/culture/2018/12/major-league-baseball-ban-shift-strikeouts.html The TL;DR version of the article is basically: 1. There's some momentum within MLB behind the idea of banning the shift to increase offense. 2. However, analysis shows that this would have only a negligible...

    I just heard the Mets just made Wilmer a free agent. I always thought he was a good utility player. Should the Yankees have any interest with him?🙂

  13. Are Redsox pitchers using a foreign substance to cheat?

    LINK to video Have the Redsox been caught cheating in the ALDS and ALCS? A video uploaded to Twitter by @CodyDaeschner and Joe Reyes shows what the commentator believes is Redsox pitcher, Matt Barnes, cheating in Game 2 of the ALCS. The commentator points out Barnes grabbing his left forearm after each pitch where a "shiny" substance is located. The commentator suspects pine tar as the substance at the :31 mark. Second video is Red Sox against Yankees. Same move to arm.
